    I worked at Finish Line (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to earn experience, good transition into higher up sales, required productivity helps set good goals and benchmarks, fun environment

    Cons

    Very little to no upward mobility, manager was not receptive to new ideas from other employees, standard to keep store clean was very low

    Advice to Management

    Stay open to ideas from employees, keep store and stock room much cleaner/organized, implement new ideas on product placement and make bundling sales (shoes w/apparel, etc.) more enticing

    Pros

    "You control your own growth within the company, development of the employees is a key area of focus to help grow the company.

    Cons

    Compensation for the hours and work put in for management is not in line with most retail competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people by not only focusing on their growth and development but also compensate for that growth with higher pay.

    Pros

    The team first atmosphere that you feel in the store. The peer to peer accountability within the district. And the opportunity to grow within the company.

    Cons

    The challenges are similar to any jobs that are similar. Such as labor issues at times under what was needed for size of store. And schedule flexibility was a challenge at times.

    I worked at Finish Line full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere was very up-beat, and I enjoyed the other employees that I worked with. Also, the discount was very nice.

    Cons

    As with any retail store, you have to work most holidays and weekends. Also, the upper management did not create a welcoming atmosphere for employees looking to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    More attention should be paid to employees who are excelling in their positions, and greater effort should be put forth into trying to retain and develop those employees.

    I have been working at Finish Line full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced and energetic environment. Great product and great service values. Opportunities to advance. Bonus based on performance. You get out what you put in.

    Cons

    Senior management has cut labor and cost to the bone. There's not enough support available to complete all that's required. You'll have to be talented and hard working to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Stop prioritizing saving money over increasing top line sales. You have to spend money to make money. Everything is over complicated. Stop with the excessive conference calls.

    Hours are crazy but that is retail especially if you work in a mall that doesn't like to close working holidays and switching up a lot of things

    Advice to Management

    Convey info better understand how crucial communication is to all other employees keep the energy up every day you work
